Texas; Rustic and Bold

An original, well made and stylish piece of furniture makes a powerful statement. That's why all men who read Manly Monday need to pay close attention to the work of Tyson Pendergrass and Gable Bostic of Austin, Texas. 

Tyson and Gable of Petrified Design create and craft furniture from refurbished materials. As Tyson shared, "Our pieces go great in anything from a studio loft to a cabin in the woods. Each piece is clean and modern but at the same time, rustic and bold." I particularly like the Tre Bar Stool, available in various woods including pecan, walnut, maple, cypress and cedar.  

This is a great piece- the Gooseneck X coffee table or bench. The wood originally came from the platform of an old gooseneck trailer. 

The JB Bench is made from square telephone poles the guys gathered from the Bostic Ranch in Lampasas, Texas. As stated on their site, "This aged pine has detail you can only find with 100 plus years of Texas sun." 

This gorgeous Plover Desk Lamp is made from black walnut. As Tyson states, it is "joined together by a cross joint and a steel base that brings out the natural tones of the wood while keeping it raw and organic." 

Their cafe table and chairs have a lot of versatility and would work well in an industrial style office or the modern outdoor patio. I don't like meetings much but I wouldn't mind having a get together at this table... 

The Crosspatch Desk is one item Tyson and Gable are particularly excited about, and with good reason. As Tyson shared, "Everything is hand made, down to the crank and the gears, making it a really unique piece." I can't think of a guy who wouldn't appreciate the detail and care that went into this handsome creation. It's a bold and intriguing statement any manly man can make, without ever saying a word...

Petrified Design

Rocking chairs are easy to love, but perhaps some have a higher love factor than others. Like this one...whose wood derives from a used wine barrel in Central Texas. The curvature of the barrel is carried through in this design, brilliantly crafted by Tyson Pendergrass and Gable Bostic of Petrified Design in the Austin/Hill Country region of Texas. 

If you follow Sweet Peach, you may have noticed that I have a weakness for anything wood and metal. These expertly constructed tables certainly make me a little weak in the knees. Tyson sheds light on he and Gable's aesthetic, "We design furniture with a story and a purpose and love that what we design we haven't seen before. Our furniture can work in the modern city loft or the rustic mountain cabin." 

Residing in the hill country, Tyson adds, "Our designs and construction have a natural Southern feel while keeping clean, modern lines." This bench is a great example of this as he and Gable repurposed this wood from an old Texas ranch and with a keen attention to detail, handcrafted a really stunning piece. I want, I want...

This East Polk Low Lounger stays true to its name as one who reclines here should plan to stay awhile. Think of a sunset, a beer, maybe a second low lounger close by for a friend...life is made better with guys like Tyson and Gable around.
